Our Events 

Meet the Candidates Potluck Picnic


​Spend a few hours in the park, relaxing, swimming, playing games, sharing old-fashioned picnic foods and chatting with several Oregon candidates. Nothing formal about this event! Bring your favorite picnic foods to share and get to know who's running for office! Throw in a couple of folding chairs, inner tubes and towels for the kiddos and come on down! We've reserved the shelter which has electricity, running water and 2 burners. A pebble beach on the Willamette is close by.

Watch this event---more candidates will be added as they confirm!

The Reluctant Radical! Showing in Lebanon, Oregon


Film showing followed by Q+A with valve turner Ken Ward and co-star Leonard Higgins. 


If a crime is committed in order to prevent a greater crime, is it forgivable? Is it, in fact, necessary? THE RELUCTANT RADICAL explores these questions by following activist Ken Ward as he confronts his fears and puts himself in the direct path of the fossil fuel industry to combat climate change.

While this specifically addresses climate change, it is a wonderful example of peaceful civil disobedience, which can also be utilized in any format, for any cause. When the normal routes of policy-making/changing are unsuccessful in drawing attention to the basic needs of most Americans, we have little choice but to act.


Mark your calendar

for a  spooktacular time!
